Same Angle, Different Day

We had a heck of a snow storm roll in last week. But first, I woke up to a solid sheet of ice out here at our place. A friend and I were to travel that morning and the snow wasn’t predicted until later in the day. The ice should have been our clue to stay home but this trip was a must for my friend for a dental appointment. By the time we hit the road heading south at 0:dark thirty that morning, the snow started to fall. But the further south we got, it cleared up. On the way home, heading north, it was a different story. Our vehicle hit black ice and we lost control. We fishtailed, crossed the median and twirled around finally landing in the southbound lane. Fortunately we weren’t hurt and there was only one vehicle on the road. He was able to avoid us because he was, thankfully, paying attention. Later that evening when heading out to do chores, I took a spill on the ice and landed on tailbone, further aggravating an injury that happened years ago. I’ll tellya, it was so good to get chores done, get inside the house, load up the wood stove and go to bed. That day just needed to end. I’m still stiff and sitting on a donut a week later.
I told my Dad about that mess of a day and he said “and after all of that, you still aren’t convinced to move back to Georgia?”
Not a chance, Dad. Not a chance.

      Thank you, Jane! I’ll take snow before ice any day. The solid ice cover on the ground out here is a very rare occurrence. Ice on the roads is pretty normal as folks drive on snow and pack it into ice before the snow plow can get to it. But invisible ice on top of dirt, very rare. And very dangerous.

    Beautiful image of the snowscape and the bare-boned hoar of tree. Minus the snow, it seems to be a keeping tales of the greens ahead in its bosom. Stay put, lady!
